Us Fossils Gotta Stick Together
I had a pet trilobite once. Len Moffatt even named it for me: "Trilby." Since I'm obviously a fossil hound from 'way back, it stands to reason that I'd be lured in by the sign for Jewelry & Minerals of Las Vegas, at Sahara and Santa Rita. Two expansive showrooms are crammed with fossils, minerals, polished agate, carvings, art, and geodes so honking big you could crawl inside them. There are even bargains galore: I spotted ammonites on sale for $1, and you can get shards of kyanite for a quarter. Make great gifts!
